Teachers Use of Data, Measurement, and Data Modeling in Quantitative Reasoning (Petrosino, 2016)
To organize this chapter, I articulate the role of data modeling including an emphasis on variability as a means of pursuing meaningful investigative activities in STEM classrooms. I continue by addressing some key components of an instructional sequence for scaffolding measurement, variability, and modeling in the pursuit of experiment in K-12 settings. Next, I discuss the role of pre-service teacher education and professional development in attempting to take some of these reform pedagogies to a larger scale than simple single classroom implementations. I conclude by discussing how quantification and measurement could forge links between integrating science and mathematics education.
